Review: Murua Tattoo Set

 photo DSCF0976.jpg
Finally a chance to try these lovely tattoos! I bought them back in June 2012, didn't know where to place the designs so it has been sitting on my shelf for months.

For those who don't know, Murua is a popular Japanese brand that produces strong and dramatic pieces highlighting both a girly charm and womanly strength. This brand is featured in Vivi magazines so do take a look there for more information. Though their items are gorgeous I can't afford to get any. I bought this tattoo set from Taobao so obviously it's not real :/

Here's the steps on how to apply temporary tattoos!
(I used my sister's arm for demo.)

1. Choose & cut out your desired tattoo.
2. If it's long chains like the one illustrated above, measure the desired length and cut of the excess, you can use the excess part for other areas!
3. Peel off the clear plastic sheet that protects the tattoo.
4. Position the tattoo on the area you want it to be, don't press it down first if you still considering the possible area to stick them as bits of it might rub onto your dry skin then it won't look as nice.
5. Wet a piece of cloth or sponge and gently dab, making sure that the entire part is wet for the tattoo to adhere to skin.
6. Usually I just peel them off after it's wet, do it slowly so if you happen to miss out any part, you can press back down and re-wet them again.
7. Wait for it to dry, about 10-15minutes and it is usually sticky even after it's dried so I will put some powder on top to keep it matte.

This set of tattoos can only last for a day or two if you're really careful, the quality of this isn't as good as Chanel which can last up to 5 days. So this will be great if you want additional accessories for a particular event. Here's mine for yesterday's Maybelline event, not too obvious unless people look closely at my arm.

It reads: The music of the people is the music of God.

One last thing, you can remove the tattoo by using makeup remover, I tried it with Loreal makeup remover and it was a breeze removing them;)

Review: Owndays PC (Blue Shield) Lenses

A few months ago, I posted a guide & review on Owndays Singapore and mentioned that I would like to get PC lenses with them as well as do a pair of eye glasses in Korea/Japan and I did both! Now I have 3 pairs of spectacles which is alittle too much. Oh well, at least I don't have to worry about not being able to see if I were to lose one pair of spectacles!  Today I'll be reviewing on their PC aka blue shield lenses. They seemed to be emphasizing more on this type of lens lately and I didn't find a review on this so I decided to be the first to start. Owndays PC lenses come with a slight tinted brown colour and blue coating. The purpose of these lenses is to cut down a certain amount of blue light that is being emitted from electronic devices such as computer, mobile phones, TV, etc.  (Picture credited to Owndays Singapore)
You might be wondering, what is blue light and why do we emphasis so much on it now? Blue light is a type of light that is blue in colour(like duh.…

Review & Guide: Owndays Singapore

If you've been to Korea or Japan, you might have heard of getting a pair of spectacles done within the same day or even within minutes! Based on reviews I found online and through friends, it can cost less than $100 for a pair and I have been tempted to get mine done there ever since.

Earlier last year, Owndays decided to expand and opened its first shop in Singapore. To many, it was a relatively new concept to get spectacles within the same day but to me, it's like finally, I have a chance to experience it without having to travel!

A basic introduction to those who are not familiar with the store. Owndays is a brand from Japan that offers all-in-one price (frame + 1.6 high index aspheric lenses) at $98-$198. With 1,500 styles to choose from and processing time of 20 minutes, you can not only find a pair of spectacles to correct your vision but also change them according to different occasions.

I love their open concept. Unlike most optical…

Guide to KORAIL's O Train & V Train

Sightseeing trains are gaining popularity in Korea and it is one of the things you have to try when you're there! Today I'll be sharing on O Train & V Train which started its operations sightly more than a year ago on April 2013. These trains journey through Korea's inland valleys with the O-train looping around the central inland region, running through the provinces of Chungcheongbuk-do, Gangwon-do, and Gyeongsangbuk-do. While the V-train, connecting Buncheon in Gyeongsangbuk-do Province and Cheolam in Gangwon-do Province, runs through scenic valleys. Detailed information on these trains can be found on VisitKorea.

I realized there is a lack of information on the site as to how you can purchase the tickets online or offline and how to best plan the route if you would like to take both trains plus return to Seoul on the same day. So here's a simple post on how I purchased my tickets on the spot and the mistake I made(and you can avoid if you read this post), but …
